Befriending Groups  

About Volunteer Contact Us Home Events

What are Befriending Groups?


These social groups provide a safe place where:

  • people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) can socialise comfortably

  • so-called social "mistakes" won't be judged

  • they can learn social skills with a peer group that understands


It can be enormously therapeutic for adults with ASDs to meet other people experiencing the same challenges - and they're fun too!

Adult Social Befriending Group


These free sessions will provide information and advice for autistic adults and anyone you wish to bring along for support. They're also a place to meet, socialise and share experiences. The first hour facilitates friendly conversation and gives an overview of NAS services. During the second half, you're welcome to join in with various board games or just relax in our company.

Come and join us for NEW Social Events Group for adults with autism and their families and carers organised by NAS Peterborough Branch.


The Social Events Group requires bookings and there is a charge for each activity paid by the individual members, more details can be provided or obtained from our website. Please come along and share your experiences, interests and concerns.

The activities organised will be different every month.

They will include visiting a local cinema, going out for a meal, playing sports or managing and playing various board games, we are open to new suggestions for the Social Events Group so we can improve the group and do activities that autistic people would want to come to.
